Hi All, long-time reader, long-time lurker.

 

The rear sun shade on my 2009 GS450h will only go half-way up. It seems mechanical, like the scissor system is getting stuck, or obstructed.

 

Lexus of Perth quoted me over $3000 to simply replace the unit, which was super annoying.

 

Any fault history with those blinds? I'd like to just remove it and inspect, but they won't do it.

It could be obstructed by some thing or the motor may be on the way out, take it to Toyota it should be the same motor as the Aurion rear shade has??

I just wanted to update people on this.

 

When I had my car serviced, they removed various trim components to clean the battery system filters and extraction fan. This was not replaced properly and jammed the sunshade blind.
